Overview

Singita Serengeti House is an exclusive and luxurious property located in the private 350,000-acre Singita Grumeti Game Reserve, Northern Tanzania. This stunning ‘home from home’, perched on the Sasakwa hillside, offers fabulous views across the vast plains and unsurpassable comfort in a truly wild location.

With its wide-open verandas and tasteful blend of European design and African artefacts, Singita Serengeti House provides a deluxe yet unpretentious retreat with a tennis court and a fabulous 25-metre infinity pool overlooking a salt-lick and water hole often frequented by a family of elephants. Archery is offered and there is a high-end spa and gym at the nearby Sasakwa Lodge. Somewhat unusually for a property of its calibre, the house has been specifically designed to welcome families and small groups of friends. Its commitment to supporting the local community means that staff members are from the surrounding area and much of the food served in the restaurant is locally sourced. There is relaxed ‘family-style’ dining, with platters of food served in the centre of the table and there is also an award-winning wine cellar. Attention to detail is a given and the facilities and service are outstanding.

Up to 8 guests can stay at the property. There are two elegant suites located in the main house plus two detached garden suites. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and well-appointed, all with their own viewing veranda and en-suite bathroom. Each of the large bathrooms has a double vanity basin, a shower and a free-standing bath.

There are plenty of activities to enjoy in the locality. Private game drives in state-of-the-art landrovers offer visitors the opportunity to view up-close the great variety of wildlife found in this area including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, Bat Eared Fox, giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and more. It is worth noting that the Migration Path varies from year to year and at times this location may not be the best in the Serengeti for game-viewing, although nothing can really detract from the enjoyment of a stay at this first-class property. Walking and horseback safaris (experienced riders only) are also offered, as are early morning Balloon Safaris. The private nature of the Grumeti reserve means that night time safaris are possible.

In the interest of safety, participation of children in game activities is at the discretion of the guide. A babysitting service is provided, along with myriad activities tailored to children's needs including arts and crafts, baking with chefs, butterfly capture (with identification and subsequent release), face painting and a fantastic mini-rangers course involving tracking animals, an astronomy safari, flower-pressing, and tuition in bush survival techniques.

Singita Serengeti house offers a private safari experience in opulent but relaxed surroundings. The price tag is high but you most certainly get what you pay for; this is one of the best safari properties in Africa and will not disappoint.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
